The Enigma is really a multiplier rod.

I can't help you with the fishing 'cos I'm in East Anglia.

Certainly for the beach, I'd go for the Penn Supermag Extra if you can do the money (£150). Concretes been trying the Okuma Magnetix and it looks a blinding reel for £60 and I will be investing in one shortly for a third rod.

the two new abu 6500 and quite a bit cheaper to, one of the reels the 6500C3CT MAG HI SPEED has a ratchet, line out alarm fitted or clicker as its called they were removed a few years ago aparently pressure from tournament casters looks great

I t depends on where you will be fishing Clarky- if you're gonna be rock fishing on the North East Coast you'd be better off going for something a bit bigger than the ABU- they're great casting reels and you can pick up the old green Mag Elites for a bargain - but something like a Slosh 30 can also cast well and cope with the heavier ground in the North East.

if you're fishing clean beaches then to be honest you cant go wrong with an ABU mag but you've gotta look after them and keep the clean and serviced.

Never, ever buy an item of tackle 'cos it looks good.

Buy it because it does the job you need it to.

Wise words indeed- Does anybody want to buy a bulk load of flashy tackle?

I'm quite lucky as I know two tackle shop owners and plenty of people who just have to buy the latest gear. This often gives me the opportunity to try something out before I buy it.

Can't go wrong with the supermag Clarky. I've got one and I swear by it. Really good strong reel and excellent for casting. The mag extra has a brake on it that's easier to catch by accident and change your settings so best with just the supermag.

Just be careful of the Supermag Xtra as mine and StuartDVs have had cracked end plates. It wasn't a problem because Penn sorted them out really quicklyand easily, but just be careful.

I also have an Okuma Magnetix model 20 - tye smaller one and it's fine. Not as fast as the 525 but at half the price (or third or whatever) still good value. You can get Mag Elites now for the same price (new) if you look around, even though they are the old model.
